Leicester City midfielder, Wilfred Ndidi, has been ruled out for the rest of the season.
The Super Eagles star underwent surgery after he fell off during their UEFA Europa Conference League last-16 draw with Rennes on March 17.
Foxes boss, Brendan Rodgers, has now confirmed that Ndidi will be out of action this season and will rehabilitate with a view to returning before the start of the season.
Rodgers said: ‘Wilfred Ndidi will be out this season, it’s a shame for us, but he will get ready for next season.
‘It’s unfortunate. He has been a brilliant player to me during my time here. He suffered a nasty injury that required surgery and he will now recover until June.”
It comes as a setback in Leicester’s ambitions to become the first winners of the Europa Conference League, while Dutch PSV Eindhoven awaits them in the quarter-finals.
Winning that competition would return the Foxes to the Europa League for next season, as they are currently only 10th in the Premier League table.
